About the Property

ideal for families, couples and retirees wishing to live in Belize

Unique and totally private contemporary house that set on a 3 acres breezy hill top with gorgeous views & private pool, 2 large bedrooms and one small, 2 baths, 3 large decks and interior garden. Conveniently located only 2 miles away from the main ecotourism hub (San Ignacio town) but it feels like far away . Very high ceilings, cross ventilated rooms, hammocks, lounge chair, garden paths to walk right outside, etc.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: We built our dream house property in 2008 and feel it is the best place to live in Belize!

Why Santa Elena, Belize:
The property sets on the top of a breezy hill with a majestic view we never get tired of looking at. It offers the privacy and intimacy of a resort while not being too isolated and close to the groceries store and bustling village life. In fact, we were not the first one to find this location as a premium spot, while building the foundations of the house, we found 2 ancient Mayan foundations laying one on top of another. We believe it is a great property for those who go for the car rental option, preferably a SUV, either in San Ignacio or Belize City and explore the area at their own rhythm without being bound to any schedule. The road access to the house is a dirt path, often bumpy, that gets muddy on rainy season.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On days where everyone complains about heat and humidity and get to our place, they are always surprised by how much more comfortable and cooler it is up there.
